I have been experiencing an issue with Archive.org Book Reader since approx November 2020. Now it only shows blank black section with no control buttons to borrow and navigate a chosen book. The text details about the book are ok and visible below the Book reader. I am using Internet Explorer 11, and there’s no option to use other browsers. Any solutions?

we no longer support IE11. Try firefox.

I made it clear that there is no option to use other browsers. And funny thing in light of your answer - I stumbled upon at least two books that work just fine in IE11. They seem to be free to view without the need to borrow. So IE11 is capable of displaying book contents really, and your answer sounds rather perfunctory. Can you please recheck with the developers what the problem might be. Below are the links to the books that work in IE11:
